in response to reader comment: If there were no Islam the entire West would be still in Dark Ages

A professor and a doctor from any legitimate institution of higher learning anywhere in the free and democratic world would never make the kind of statements and/or claims in your post.

You suggested four authors by which we infidels might learn a thing or two about the honor and glory of Islam from which the universe and all that it includes emanates. Scholars and educators in the west read, study and refer to thousands of texts and authors. In addition to their responsibilities of teaching, they must publish for peer review scholarly articles within their field of expertise.

You live in a very small, arid limited world. Your ability to think is chained to your religious fanaticism. No truly educated human being in the twenty-first century could adhere to a religion that oppresses, demeans, defiles and enslaves women and which endorses and blesses the right of lunatics to kill and slaughter thousands of innocents in the name of a belief system begun by a pedophile whose main claim to fame was that a seven year girl was his concubine.

Take some of that medicine you claim emanates from Islam. Perhaps it can cure your ignorance ...
